Skip to comments.Joe Bastardi: Media Just "Want to Be Popular" on Climate Change
Posted on 07/21/2014 1:01:30 PM PDT by CedarDave
Climate alarmists sometimes like to claim skeptical scientists dont exist, but they do, and one meteorologist had a lot to say on the subject.
In an interview with the MRCs Business and Media Institute, well-known meteorologist Joe Bastardi dissected and criticized major aspects of the climate change alarmism movement. Drawing on his knowledge of weather and climate history, Bastardi said that extreme weather events the media talk about so much are commonplace and the result of normal variability. He also attacked basic arguments about CO2, scientific consensus and alarmist media bias.
Bastardi contended that climate alarmism is ludicrous and not about science. He didnt mince words, blasting climate alarmists as living in a loony world. He also criticized news media that simply follow what the majority thinks because they want to be popular instead of understanding the issue.
After many years working with AccuWeather, Bastardi is now a weather forecaster for Weatherbell Analytics LLC, where he is tasked with making accurate and objective forecasts for private sector clients.
Bastardi specializes in understanding the history of weather and climate and said he used this understanding to accurately predict both Hurricane Sandy and Hurricane Arthur ahead of official warnings. In contrast, he said alarmists dont know what happened yesterday or know anything about what happened in the past.
As Bastardi pointed out, he has to make accurate predictions in order to be paid and has no political motivation.
Bastardi asserted that alarmist scientists cannot actually be objective, because they are given grants explicitly to study global warming.
